Pre-race promo article including the course overview at the bottom. Teams will start with 20 miles of Snowshoe Mountaineering.

Who’s going? JayXC will be there on Team Untamed New England so I guess we have to cheer for *him* again. ;)

Looking at the team list, here are the APers I recognize:
Alex Provost
Rachel Furman
Jeff Woods
Mindy Fernando (not as active)

I think Michael Garrison is on AP? Is Dave Lamb?

Many to cheer for and several very strong teams! Should be a great watch.

Excited to follow this one. Hopefully the tracking is more consistent this time.

Lots of people to cheer for!

The quality of the real-time tracking will depend on whether they’ve decided to use Yellowbrick trackers or similar. Last year Mark Harris told them they were going into areas where the cell network-based trackers would not be able to transmit regularly but they chose them anyway and that’s what we saw. The Adventure Enablers tracking system can be linked to any tracker but the lowest cost option is their fleet of small cell network-based trackers.

Lots of non-AP regulars in the US racing circuit, too! Mark Lattanzi, Rodney Villella, Amy Bartoletti, JD...

It sounds like Randy is trying to get on the ground, so hopefully that will help with coverage, too, when the dot watching is inconsistent.

Just saw the actual team list, rather than the teams that were noted in yesterday's press release -- lots more folks from the US AR scene! Matt Hayes in on AP, I think. Some of the Journey crew may be as well.

Another Canadian, James Galipeau, used to log here as Relentless. He’s racing with Mountain Race Company.

And yet another Canadian, Kevin Poirier, still logs on AP as kpoire. He’s with Perpetual Motion.
